Grateful Ball featuring Jeff Austin Band & The Travelin’ McCourys :: 10.22.16 :: Ardmore Music Hall :: Ardmore, PA
Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, Pennsylvania hosted the Grateful Ball on Saturday night. The concert started with a set from the Jeff Austin Band, followed by a performance from The Travelin’ McCourys and a collaborative third set filled with Grateful Dead covers. Former Yonder Mountain String Band mandolinist Jeff Austin and Ronnie McCoury from one of bluegrass’ greatest families handled vocals for most of the Dead set. The stage was crowded as Jeff, Ronnie and their bands offered string band interpretations of such Grateful Dead live repertoire classics as “Loose Lucy,” “I Know You Rider,” “Althea” and “Brown-Eyed Women.” Photographer Meredith Kleiber was on hand to capture the action.
